Hi guys got a question for you.

I've just got myself a Pulsar comp2 to use as my main charger. At the moment i'm following the factory settings regarding charge and discharge for the GP33's, bar using 6A charging voltage (10mv delta, 10A discharge, 5.4v discharge, no trickle, lineat charge). Any tips people might like to add in? Running stock motors btw, so run-time is not the issue, voltage is

However, when I come to discharge my 4cell packs, 5.4v doesn't work.... (unsuprisingly... 1.2 x 4 = 4.8v)
For the moment, I've set the discahrge to 3.6v on the 4cell packs, is this the correct thing to do?
I figured that 5.4v equates to 0.9v per cell, so keeping that ratio 4 x 0.9 = 3.6. Am I correct in this?

thanks in advance
Ed
I would bump up the peak detect for racing outdoors since its so cold, but inside ive been using 10, and outside 20-25m/v making sure they come off warm but not hot. BTW you got msn, i fancy a natter about some stuff, PM me

I have a question about equalizing 3300's.After the pack equalizes should I recharge immediately?? wait ??? how long??? then charge? The tray is a "zero cutoff" tray, and it says to "rest" the cells for 36 hours after equalizing,then charge.What is best?
Thanks in advance for any help

Well from the sound of it according to the directions you stated let them rest. I use the Novak tray and the Pro Match tray(I like to leave the pack in PM tray overnight from time to time) and for both I usually leave the pack as is till race day but not over a week at a time. I usually put a slight amount of charge in them if sitting over a week. Of course the longer they will be sitting the more charge they would need.

No problem, hope that helps. Honestly there are several different schools of thought. It all boils down to how long you want you batteries to last. You can do things increase performance but it will decrease life; or you can do things to increase life but the performance will stay the same. It is all a trade off.

I'm good with the increased performance/sacrifice longevity.I don't have a problem replacing something more often if I can get more out of it.I come from the off-road Nitro world so this is all new to me.I would like any thoughts on improving performance.Any tips anyone cares to give on improving performance?

I charge at 6 amps,discharge at 30.I didn't have a tray so I picked up a INDI ZERO-EQUALIZER. I am already seeing my cells had very different amounts of charge in them.These basics are about the extent of my electric knowledge,so I'm open to all advice.

Don't worry? Are you kidding me? I'm actively looking for a camel toe. I always keep my camera handy for that special shot.
